Change grub timeout under OpenSolaris (menu.lst location)

If you are looking for menu.lst under Solaris where you can set the boot timeout for grub, you should be able to find it under /rpool/boot/grub/menu.lst -- unlike under Linux, where it is located under /boot/grub/menu.lst. Changing the timeout from the 30 s default to a smaller value, results in a shorter boot time during an automatic system restart.
